Welcome to Concordia University Irvine’s Department of History and Political Thought. We are a small but robust department in the School of Arts and Sciences, offering both majors and minors in history, politics, and law.
Our faculty are all accomplished scholars with years of teaching and professional experience. During our last assessment an external reviewer described us as a “powerhouse of liberal arts education.” We have since continued in this trajectory by strengthening and expanding our course offerings and playing an integral role in Concordia’s Q&I curriculum.
Students at CUI describe our classes as rigorous and rewarding. This can, of course, be attributed to the time and care each of our instructors dedicate to teaching and mentoring our outstanding students. Our classes are typically (and by design) small, the course content is always rich, and our offices are always open.
I’m proud to be a part of this faculty. Their expertise and commitment to students is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. We are very proud of our graduates, as well. They continue to impress us with their accomplishments after they graduate. Many go on to pursue graduate and law degrees. Some have gone into military and intelligence professions. Others have chosen teaching careers.
If you would like to know more about studying history, politics, and law at Concordia University, please do not hesitate to call me at (949) 214-3324, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be my pleasure to speak with you.
